RESOLVE’s Statement Regarding Supreme Court Ruling on the Affordable Care Act

Since the Affordable Care Act was passed into law in 2010 RESOLVE has been very active in understanding this complicated policy as it relates to people living with infertility. Our membership in the National Health Council allows us to sit at the table and discuss these issues with leading experts in healthcare reform, policy, and chronic conditions.
Today’s ruling does not change RESOLVE’s strategy related to the Affordable Care Act. Since its founding, RESOLVE has worked to ensure that people diagnosed with infertility have access to the medical treatments they need. Our efforts to date have helped create insurance mandates for infertility treatment in 15 states. Today we remain committed to protecting those mandates.
We encourage the infertility community to follow what is happening in your state. Each state must choose which type of benchmark insurance plan it will use to create the Essential Health Benefits model for their residents. RESOLVE is currently researching the process that each state may take to choose an Essential Health Benefits Plan and how it may impact people living with infertility.
RESOLVE will continue to update the infertility community with resources, actions to take, and updates on our work.
